Owner description: The Djunta Mo Art project was started on the Island of Sal, Cape Verde, for the purpose of developing a sustainable market in the archipelago and especially, to promote Cape Verde’s art, culture and crafts. Djunta Mo Art is committed to an ethical approach; its main objective is to improve the lives of workers by increasing their access to markets, monitoring that no products are made by exploiting juvenile workers, by paying special attention to environmental problems. We currently have about 40 craftspeople we collaborate with and 2 cooperatives from several areas in the archipelago. Some of them, thanks to our support, are beginning to make a living from their work and are hiring personnel in order to increase output. Djunta Mo Art is also official distributor of the project "Maos de Cabo Verde" (Hands of Cape Verde") which brings together 10 women's cooperatives from Santo Antao, Fogo e Santiago. The project also provides and finances the non-profit Nu Bai Association

Sympathetic small shop with Cape Verde products. Employee Didi attentive and friendly.
In difference to other shops, you feel welcome as client and person, not treated just as tourist that has to buy sth. Good place indeed!
